Microbiology

Scope and Importance

There is vast scope in the field of microbiology due to the advancement in the field of science and technology. The scope in this field is immense due to the involvement of microbiology in many fields like medicine, pharmacy, dairy, industry, clinical research, water industry, agriculture, chemical technology and nanotechnology.

The study of microbiology contributes greatly to the understanding of life through enhancements and intervention of microorganisms. There is an increase in demand for microbiologists in India and globally. A microbiologist can innovate new diagnostic kits, discover new drugs, teach, research, etc.

Graduate degree in microbiology gives you the opportunity to work at science laboratories and pathology laboratories as well.

  • If you have a PG in microbiology, you can work in microbiology based industries like pharmaceutical, dairy, breweries, distilleries, enzyme, etc. and you also can pursue Ph.D. if interested in research.
  • Students who complete PhD can take up teaching at universities and PG colleges. They can also take up a post-doctoral research.
  • Microbiologists can work in the area of food, pharmacy, agro-chemistry biotechnology, bio-refinery, environment, pollution control and bioremediation.
  • In the field of agriculture, microbiologists act as environmental and health specialists to study the role of microbes in plant disease, pest control, nutrition and soil fertility.
  • In the field of medicine and health care, the work is usually associated with diagnosis, prevention and treatment of illnesses associated with microbes.Universities and colleges employ microbiologists as researchers and teachers.
